    Has anyone surfed this site on the DROID? When I try to hit a link on the screen, 8 out of 10 times it selects the whole screen and takes you to the Amazon ad link. I understand the site need ad revenue, but it is quite annoying to surf this site on my phone.

    Anyone else?

    I noticed that also. I zoom in like 7 times to make sure it doesn't hit that.

    Or you could just use the D-pad to select the link you want.

    That requires sliding the keyboard,

    And the amazon whitespace has already been discussed and vomited on.

    I don't know about you, but for me, sliding the keyboard is much faster than zooming in 7 times :p

    Dunno about you but the virt landscape is much faster than the physical keyboard!

    fabolous, is there some meaning to your name, as it's not spelled correctly. Just makes me giggle every time I see your screen name :)

    I find the same thing. I notice this on a few other sites as well. I have just been sliding the kayboard and using the d pad. Not my favorite fix but does the trick. Anyone know why this is happeneing.. Maybe some change in the code of the advert would fix this issue.

    It's still spelled wrong, lol. Just like the viewed clicks to to yahoo, that just doesn't seem right, and maybe the owner of the site will update.

    -------------------------
    Are these clicks on droid teaching our kids to not use proper english? LOL LOL LOL.

    I like how you couldn't answer it but had to link to wikipedia which is known for mis-information.

    Ok, PM me if you have a reply to this, that would be the proper thing. Sorry that I mixed a few things here.:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

    This, or the owner of the website. Sometimes there's NOTHING amazon on the page as far as adverts, but it goes to amazon, hmmm.

    The only issue I have is that it doesn't remember me. I have to log in every time I come. I've checked my settings and everything seems to be setup right.

    I have reported this to the admins. I will add this thread to the notification. I don't know if it is something requiring Amazon to fix or not.

    Thank you!

    By the way, there is a work around until this problem is fixed.

    Just scroll to the bottom of the forum, and select the "AF Mobile" skin. No more ads!

    The mobile skin on the Droid is horrible. It is definitely designed for a much lower-res screen, AND a D-pad. On the odd occasion when the ad in 'My Android' area is NOT amazon, but something else, the click box is exactly the size of the ad, and not covering entire forum.

    You missed the whole point of his name. Fabolous is a rapper aka Fabolous Sport from back in the DJ Clue mixtape days. He spells it that way purposely, and if you ever listen to him you will see why, it rolls off the tongue very smoothly.

    Ugh, this happens to me ALL the time and it annoys the hell out of me. I try to click a link and Amazon appears in my face. Hate it. They need to fix this.
